Green caught four of nine targets for 50 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 20-17 win over the Broncos.
Green had a rather quiet game going into the fourth quarter, but an 18-yard touchdown reception salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective. While he's only surpassed 50 receiving yards in one of his last five games, three trips to the end zone during that span have benefited his fantasy owners. Green will look to further distance himself from recent quiet outings next week against the Browns.
Green racked up 115 yards and a touchdown on five catches while being targeted seven times in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Titans.
Green's 70-yard touchdown put his team up 20-17 with 5:03 to play, but the hosts responded with a beautiful scoring drive capped by a seven-yard DeMarco Murray receiving touchdown with 36 seconds to play. While the star wide receiver had actually been held below 50 yards in every game since Week 5, his big-play ability and high target volume make Green an every-week staple in fantasy lineups.
After the two players trash talked one another throughout the first half of the contest, Green's frustration boiled over late in the second quarter, when he was ejected from the contest after grabbing Ramsey's neck, tossing him to the ground and throwing several punches. Per Tom Pelissero of NFL.com, both players could be facing fines for their antics, but neither will be subject to any supplemental discipline from the league office. With that in mind, Green's fantasy owners can rest easy knowing that he'll be available for the Bengals' Week 10 matchup with the Titans, likely eager to make amends after his early departure resulted in him turning in one catch for six yards in the Week 9 loss.
Green was ejected from Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars in the second quarter, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.
In an outburst completely uncharacteristic of Green's career to date, the star wideout completely lost his cool and took it out on the top Jacksonville defensive back. Green and cornerback Jalen Ramsey had been engaged in heated trash talking all game, but it finally boiled over when Green grabbed the back of Ramsey's neck, took him to the ground and threw several punches. Green will certainly be fined for the incident, and it wouldn't be too surprising if the league office considered a suspension. He'll finish the day with just one catch for six yards, resulting in the lowest fantasy point total for him on the season. In the meantime, the Bengals will be left with Brandon LaFell and tight end Tyler Kroft as the top pass-catching options, though running back Joe Mixon -- who has two catches at halftime -- should be a factor as well.
Green caught three of eight passes for 27 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-23 win over Indianapolis.
Green tied the game up late in the second quarter with a nifty double move to break over the middle for an eight-yard score. The stud receiver has been held to just three catches in each of the last two weeks, but new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor has been sure to target him in the red zone, leading to Green logging a touchdown in four of his last five games. To put into perspective how Green's value is rising, that's as many scores as he had in 12 games under former offensive coordinator Ken Zampese.
